was insistent that his nation was committed to peace. jim walsh, an expert at international security at mit joins me now and, jim, what was your take on this speech? >> well, deb, i think you're right. i expected, as happens every year, ahmadinejad, well, i expect many different ahmadinejads. i expect the ones that has meetings like the two meetings i attended is kindler and gentler and the one that speaks in front of the general assembly is fiery to speak to that audience back home in iran or send the message to the world and didn't happen. he was pretty tame all throughout. i think what we were getting was a message of, we're reasonable and we're willing to talk and that sort of sets the stage for what will happen the u.s. election and early next year. >> you know, jim, ahmadinejad, really, he's on his way out. the iranian economy is in crisis and high inflation and money has been choked off by sanctions and many iranians are embarrassed. is he becoming irrelevant now that he is really a in the last nine months of his presidency? his leadership there? >> you know, deb, i think that's a go
correspondent jim avila now telling us the latest. jim? >> reporter: diane, american tonight grounded half its fleet of 757s, its domestic long-range workhorse, taken out of service for a second round of faa monitored fixes to prevent passenger seats from becoming dislodged in the air. at one point, one of them even turned over backwards into the row behind it. the airline's engineering team has decided the locking mechanism that secures the seat to the floor must be enhanced. it's another setback for american, which suffered record delays in september, for what it blamed on labor troubles, claiming its pilots intentionally caused delays twice as often as its competitors, something the pilots' union has denied. the seat trouble has racheted things up to now a safety issue. the seats on three flights came unhinged. just yesterday, american said it finished its inspections but now is ordering mechanics to fix the seats again, wherever the 48 planes involved land next, anywhere in the country. a move that will cause cancellations and more delays through saturday for american. diane? >> all right,
is still well above the national average. wolf. >> jim acosta joining us, thanks very much. let's dig deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, this unemployment number, the new number, how important is it to each of these two candidates? >> well, first of all it's got to be a real boost for president obama as jessica was talking about earlier. if not reality, then also a real psychological boost to get below that 8% figure. very important to them. because what it does, wolf, is it plays into the poll numbers that we've already been seeing, which is that people believe that things are getting better. the numbers are still not where the president wants them to be. but if it plays into a sense of optimism in this country, that's very good for the president. but overall you're going to hear the same refrain from both campaigns. the president's going to say that he's added more than 5 million jobs, and mitt romney's going to say there's still 23 million unemployed. >> you've spent a lot of time covering mitt romney. you did that excellent documentary all of
. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue of national security. and specifically lately on who's a better friend of israel. and there are signs the obama campaign is paying attention. at a military academy in pennsylvania, mitt romney tried to make the case for a new commander in chief. romney once again questioned the president's recent description of events in the middle east as bumps in the road. >> i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what's ahead and is willing to lead. >> reporter: romney's tough talk on iran follows israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu's drawing
to jim spellman, our cnn correspondent on the ground in denver who is with us now by phone. jim, this is criticalthathe court has been weighing so heavily on this notebook. at last blush the prosecutors dumped their efforts to get their hands on this noteok, but now we're hearing that the chain of custody, the way it's be man haned may be a b problem in this case. >> well, you know, it's really interesting how this notebook even came to anybody's attention. we've discovered in these documents that the defense team for holmes went to the university and said there is a notebook, there's a package that will be mailed to you in the mailroom. we want it. because of that and because of all the explosives in holmes' apartments they notify the police. bomb squads came. they got a look at the outside of it, the police there on site. since then after just examine it to be sure it's been safe, it's been sealed, and nobody as of the hearing last week had looked at it. not the defense. not the prosecution. not even the judge. there has been a question of it being doctor-patient privilege. we
straight, not flinch, not back off and recognize he will be double teamed. the fact is, jim lehrer is part of the cultural left. so romneyville to communicate pastlerrer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that, i think he could have a very good night. i think you could see a very different races by thursday morning. >> greta: why do you think jim lehrer will be unfair? he has the spotlight on him. i mean, you know, he -- i assume he will try his best to be fair? >> he will try his best to be fair. i am not saying he is partisan. i am saying he comes out of a news media culture, the whole network of where he lives and operates, what he does, which has the assumptions of the left and which asks questions on the framework of the left. they are very often ntheir mind being totally neutral, when they ask request questions that clearly reflect the biases of the left. that's a key part of this. >> greta: do you think that in general, moderates try to pit one candidate against another, to generate a spark in order to generate news? >> i think all too often, moderators try to p
. inspection inside the airline had now found more loose seats on more planes and abc's jim avila is here with the very latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. everything is on stake for american airlines, as passengers wonder what is next after a rash of rare seat disconnects in midair. american airlines on the offensive this morning after reports of yet another plane, this time an american flight from vail to dallas last wednesday, having rows of seats come loose. the third report in less than a week. >> we have seats loose in the back. and we need to return to base. >> reporter: the airline insisting those frightening maintenance issues that allowed the seats to attach forcing at least two jumbo jets to abort their trip have nothing to do with the airline's bankruptcy or labor troubles. >> this is a mechanical issue. it's not related to anything despite all of the rumors and speculation. >> reporter: that may not be enough for frightened passengers like this woman, too skittish to allow her face to be shown. >> the seat flipped backwards. so, people were essent
presidential debate. jim axel rod previews gangster memorabilia. tracy smith meets with character actress elizabeth banks and more. but first the headlines for this sunday morning, the 30th of september 2012. there's been another so-called insider attack in eastern afghanistan. nato says a u.s. soldier and an american civilian were killed yesterday in an attack by a member of the afghan security forces. syrian rebels yesterday launched another offensive to reclaim that nation's largest city aleppo. among the casualties one of syria's historic treasures, aleppo's medieval marketplace went up in flames. they say everything is bigger in texas. fortunately that does not apply to earthquakes. the 3.4 magnitude tremor rattled the dallas/fort worth area overnight. so far there are no reports of injuries or serious damage. this weekend's shutdown of a stretch of one of the nation's busiest freeways has led to some traffic slowdowns but carmageddon 2 is not. interstate 405 in los angeles should be open in time for tomorrow morning's rush hour. president obama and his republican challenger mitt rom
in home runs, batting average and runs batted in. jim axelrod has been following this once-in-a-generation event. >> good morning, norah. that may be underselling it. this hasn't been done in 45 years. miguel cabrera is now taking his place alongside some of the greatest names in baseball history. >> getting ready to hit third in this inning. >> he could have sat out the last game since he already had the triple crown. but 29-year-old miguel cabrera chose to play anyway last night. >> and a standing ovation. >> and soaked in the fans' appreciation for his rare achievement. even in kansas city, they were cheering. just 16 years old when the venezuelan was signed by a major league franchise, cabrera earned his place in the history books with 44 home runs, 139 rbis and a batting average of .330. all tops in the american league. >> feels good. it's an unbelievable feeling right now. >> he joins a who's who of baseball greats including triple crown winners ted williams, lou gehrig and mickey mantle. maybe more impressive is the list of those who didn't do it. >> not just that mi
runs, runs batted in. jim axelrod has been following this. jim, good morning. >> reporter: once in a generation might actually be underselling it. this hasn't been done in 45 years. miguel cabrera is now taking his place alongside some of the greatest names in baseball history. >> getting ready to hit third in this inning. >> reporter: he could have sat but the 29-year-old miguel cabrera chose to play anyway last night and soaked in the fan's appreciation for his rare achievement. even in kansas city they were cheering. just 16 years old when the venezuelan was signed by a major league franchise cabrera earned his place in the history books with 14 home runs, 139 rbis, a batting average of .330 all tops in the american league. he joins a who's who of baseball great including triple crown winners ted williams, lou gehrig and mickey mantle. >> guys like alex rodriguez, manny ramirez, barry bonds, your take a look at any of the great baseball players in the last 45 years, hank aaron never did this. >> reporter: carl yastrzemski was the last player to achieve the triple crown in 196
ball, the president will not be allowed to speak for the full 90 minutes of the debate. sp surely jim will get something in there too. possibly we could expect a 30 minute attack add? >> you never know. maybe they should put that in the rules that president could speak for 90 minutes instead of mitt romney having to say anything. i suspect that is not what they are going to do. he has a challenge to come in and not look scared or defensive. he has to be cool and calm and confident and own the space. that is the most important thing for him. if he looks skiddish. those optics will be the most devastating thing for him. you would think would be about the pressure would be on the incumbent to defend the last four years in office. but in this debate, it is clear that 100% is on how does mitt romney handle the 47% question? >> i agree with crystal to put in other terms the undecided voters are sitting with their back toward the stage. the voice and he has to be strong and have an answer. the problem he has is which every way he turns he loses a piece of the argument. ro romney is going to
recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> want to bring in our jim accosta, who is covering the romney campaign in wayne, indiana. i'm tired of the false flattery really. do people really buy this? >> reporter: no, i don't think buys it, suzanne, but, you know, campaign aides are going to do that, and th'regoin to keep doing it as long as we have elections in this is country. he compared romney to cy young. they hand it out to the best pitcher in baseball. there's a washington national that might win that this time around. geogonzalez. you know, it's one of those comments where you are sort of like, come on, guys. give me a break. >> really. >> they are going to do that because -- they are going to do it because these debates are so high stakes. i think david georgean tweeted this could be a make or break debate for mitt romney. obviously it's in the romney campaign's interest to lower expectations somewhat. mitt romney wrapped up his event in valley forge, pennsylvania. it's fitting that romney came here. his campaign has sort of been battered and bruised l
to write the romney recovery and come back story. gregg: let's bring in jim pinkerton a contributing editor writer for the american conservative magazine. alan colmes, host of the alan colmes show and the author of thank the liberals for saving the economy and why they should. >> you find that funny. gregg: i surely do. what about it, jim, media by as, is ryan's point fair? >> since 1986 when the authors li chter, lichter and roctor said the media were libya by 4-1. i don't think that is in dispute. it's only if it spills over into their professional work. i think on that store the evidence from 2012 is pretty clear. i'm looking at a headline from the daily beast, why mitt romney is trapped by his neglect any of narrative. who wrote that -- who created that narrative? it wasn't romney or ryan it was the media, they've done it to him. gregg: alan let me cite a couple of things. "the washington post" opls buds man admitted a obama by as at one time. and reporters were scolded and urged to be more balance and fair and not so proobama. he aop lee admitted the newspaper's vie last. isn't that an
. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in deb
tampering crisis. his steady stewardship became a harvard business school case study. jim burke was a navy veteran. after his business career he chaired the partnership for a drug-free america and was awarded the presidential medal of freedom. james burke was 87 years old. >>> one of the great choices in sports is gone, millions of us grew up listening to chris economaki. the best-known name in auto racing off the track. he wrote about the sport for 74 years, on tv for just about as long. you could hear his fascination with fast cars and those who drove them. chris economaki was 91. >>> the word from los angeles today, seth mcfarland will host this year's oscars. the family guy creator fresh from hosting "snl" a master of all voices says his role is to channel the great hosts of the past, like bob hope and johnny carson. >>> up next, an update on a little girl who wanted very much to switch glasses when we first met. it's our "making a difference" report tonight. report tonight. wouldn't it be cool if we took the nissan altima and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave it greater horsepo

to alter his attack on the president. with reaction from mitt romney, here is jim acosta. >> reporter: after a couple of days of very positive reviews for his debate performance against president obama, mitt romney is running in political news that may be blunting that momentum. the new unemployment report showing that the jobless rate has dipped below 8%, really taking away one of his key lines of attack against the president. for months, mitt romney has been saying the president failed to take the nation's unemployment rate below 8%, but at an event here in coal country in virginia, romney found a new way to crunch the numbers. here is what he had to say. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly. but it has come down nonetheless. the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> reporter: now for much of this weekend, romney will be campaigning across the state of florida, a state where the econom
different than it was when she ran against jim talen. she had a confidence and was much more ladylike in 2006. but in the debate on friday she came on swinging and i think that's because she feels threatened." republicans are trying to ignore akin's latest sexist comment. an rnc spokesperson said "i think it's best if the nrsc weighs in on these questions because we're so focused on the presidential." the nrcc spokesperson said, "decline to comment." it gets worse. according to "the los angeles times" akin told supporters, "the first two minutes, wow, it's like somebody let a wildcat out of the cage. she was just furious and attacking in every different direction which wases a little bit of a surprise to us." you know, it's par for the course, from the candidate who said this -- >> it seems to me, first of all, from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> of course, akin tried to apologize and now that republicans are struggling to regain the senate, they are starting to throw thei
worry. >> senator jim webb, former navy secretary, a vietnam war veteran, spoke with president obama today in virginia beach. and he went right at mr. romney on foreign policy and the wars. and he is -- he's right there when he says that we don't know what mr. romney would do if he became president. mr. romney has said recently and vaguely that he supports what president obama is doing in afghanistan in terms of there being a timeline for leaving but he has also said he was against a timeline for leaving in the past. so really who knows? he's not even trying. the closest we've gotten to any competing cogent republican position on the war is probably what we got from senator john mccain at the republican convention when he said that the afghanistan war just shouldn't end. he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm not sure that it's a politically viable position. even if it is an internally cogent one from the senator. for this year's nominee, it's apparently just not going to happen. not unless he starts it now. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets
knows quite a lot about mitt romney's debate preparation, his senior advisor, former senator jim tallent. welcome to you. >> good to be with you, piers. >> how is he getting on, the candidate? because this is potentially a make or break debate for mitt romney. >> yeah, it certainly is a big debate and a big debate for the country. well, he's worked hard. the president is a good debater and he's been in this -- on this spotlight before, so you know, governor romney is probably a little bit the underdog but i think he's going to be ready. he's going to be ready on the issues which is really what this election's about. >> there's a massive game at the moment of both sides downplaying expectation. so far, even if mitt romney just makes the stage, you guys could declare a triumph and a glorious victory. it's getting a bit ridiculous. the truth is mitt romney spent most of the first half of this year debating, so he should have the advantage, shouldn't he? >> well, i expect him to do well. i don't think -- what an election's about, what this one's about, piers, we can't go on like this with un
debate, candy, what do you take away with that in terms of how both of these candidates reacted to jim? is there anything that you learned from it or that you saw that you'll take into the next one? >> you know, the interesting thing to me is that everybody was talking about jim when it was over, and i paid no attention to him simply because i'm sitting there writing down where i saw holes in their arguments thinking, oh, this would be good, oh, this would be a good follow-up, oh, what happened here? that kind of thing. i wasn't as sort of tuned in. i was in the debate hall, so that's, as you know, kind of a wholly different thing. what i take from it is that they certainly are both going to take whatever time they feel they can get to put their views out. i get it. this is an important debate. i think there are times when the time structures drive people crazy. you know, it's kind of what they agreed on. you know, obviously at some point you need to take control, but i don't think you take control because you can or you should, but i think you take control because you want the convers
or democratic vote, you said on this network about six weeks ago, jim crowe has been best record in ohio. support that and how do you see this as being directed specifically toward african-american voters? >> victor, for example in my county the largest county in the state of ohio, cuyahoga county. in 2008, african-americans voted 56% early and in person although they only make up 26% of the voting population. we know by the data african-americans tend to vote early and they tend to vote in person. not only does what the attorney general and the secretary of state not only what they're doing does it have an impact on african-americans, it has an impact on poor folks, too. they are restricting -- the secretary of state is restricting the number of hours folks can vote. he has fired boards of election members who have dared to say we are going to stand up for the voters in the state of ohio. it is crystal clear what is going on. although there may not be barking dogs to see or a literacy test or poll tax, what they are doing is just the same, the 21st century version of voter suppression i
maybe i should say i will be back. jim cameron said, you see, arnold, i don't tell you how to act, never, because you're terrific. that's why you're playing the terminator. don't tell me how to write the script. i wrote "i'll be back." so don't rewrite it, please. >> you write in the book, i thought it was feminine. >> it sounded to me off and it sounded weak and feminine and i fought him tooth and nail and he won the argument. luckily he won the argument because -- i didn't even know that this was an important line or that it would be something that people will remember and will repeat. only when the movie came out and i was in new york and i walked down i remember fifth avenue and these kids came up to me and said, can you say the line? i said what line. they said, i'll be back. i said i'll be back. they said no, the way you say it in the movie. they say say it the way you say it in the movie. i said, i'll be back! >> yeah,ly be back would not have had the same effect. >> no. i'm listening to the line. i'm still thinking about the comments about maria. i just think someone who knows ma
